Driver fitting result question


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I just got fit for a new driver. After about 45 min to an hour the results came back the fitter put me in an 8° SIM and then lofted me up to 9° driver in a neutral setting. Why wouldn’t he just put me in a 9° version?

Great question and based on your numbers the fitter did a great job. 

 

Your miss seems to be a slice and by taking an 8 degree driver and lofting up to 9 degrees it closes the face, so it will help mitigate your miss.

I made a choice to pay for a fitting to get a legit experience. I didn’t want to be sold anything. I first wanted to see if I could get my M2 dialed in and test it against anything new. I tested 3 SIM drivers, cobra, and Callaway. The session was booked for 1 1/2 hours and we only needed about 45 min after he got my numbers in. They tried hard to sell me on a lesson plan but I got what I needed and went to TaylorMade and purchased a driver. The golftec was inside a golf galaxy. I knew I was going to buy a driver if the numbers stated it but I was hoping that the old driver could be dialed in. The back-spin was the thing that was most shocking. We couldn’t get that down on the M2 and there has to be something to the twist face. I had a good experience. I would recommend it and while I had to spend money on just a fitting in my mind having the data was nice to get without having that feeling that I was getting sold something. I was able to just say look at my numbers and go put something together.

Agree with Jlukes on the fitter doing a great job for you.  The SIM was almost made for you.   

41 yards is worth every penny you spent.

I didn’t believe it at first and the fitter was pretty cool about it. He said let’s spec up some other drivers and then come back to the sim. We did and by the time I came back to the SIM I was tired but I was still putting up similar numbers to the first time I hit it.

If I realize 20 yards in on course conditions I will be more than happy.
